Pacific ADA Announces the Emergency Management and Preparedness: Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities Webinar Series

The NIDRR-funded Pacific ADA National Network Regional Center and Great Lakes ADA National Network Regional Center have collaborated to launch the webinar series “Emergency Management and Preparedness:  Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities.”  National, state, and local entities/communities are increasingly planning emergency management and preparedness to handle disasters.  Emergencies and disasters can be particularly concerning for people with disabilities.  Successful outcomes for people with disabilities in disasters depend on how inclusive emergency/disaster plans are.  The free webinar series focuses on key strategies and approaches at various levels (i.e. federal, state, and local) toward emergency management and preparedness and the inclusion of people with disabilities.

Two sessions are currently on the schedule with additional sessions to be announced at a later date:

  • The Federal Response to Emergencies and Disasters:  How Disability Fits
    August 22nd, 2012 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. ET
  • The State, Local, and Community Response to Emergencies:  How Disability Fits
    September 13th, 2012 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. ET
